Schumacher (Class of 1978) over much of a lifetime and represents Luther commemoration over many centuries.

Schumacher in an article he published about his collection.

Hermeneia: A Critical and Historical Commentary on the Bible

The Hermeneia commentary series seeks to offer authoritative interpretation of the earliest texts of the biblical books and other literature closely related to the Bible. Hermeneia is designed for the serious student of the Bible. It makes full use of ancient Semitic and classical languages; at the same time, English translations of all comparative materials—Greek, Latin, Canaanite, or Akkadian—are supplied alongside the citation of the source in its original language. The aim is to provide the scholar with full critical discussion of each problem of interpretation and with the primary data upon which the discussion is based. Download/print chapters and search within the books.
